An Ol' Broad's Ramblings

Obama and the Democrats don’t give a flying flip about human beings! This should have been obvious a long time ago when they pushed to begin the slaughter of innocent babies. Those who have managed to escape the abortionists tools are now at risk of being killed just because it’s uncomfortable to have so many old people. Kill ObamaCare….not Grandma!
This week, Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan introduced his budget blueprint. I wanted to make sure you had a chance to read it. Under Harry Reid’s leadership, and with the approval of his fellow Democratic cohorts, it’s been 1,057 days without a budget in the Senate. Budgets are about priorities and we can’t keep playing politics with America’s top priorities: protecting the homeland and preserving our children and grandchildren’s futures.
Thank you Nevada, for giving us such a useless piece of crap in the form of Harry Reid. Sharon Angle may not have been perfect, but at least she has something resembling a brain. Reid, on the hand, is about as brainless as a a split log! When bringing up the subject of impeachment, perhaps we should talk about removing the brain dead Reid from his current position of power?
While political liberals are busy advancing the fiction of a conservative “war on contraception,” their counterparts in academia are promoting a lie at the opposite end of the reproductive continuum. The anti-life crowd is giving new life to arguments for infanticide.
In a much-discussed recent article in the Journal of Medical Ethics, Alberto Giubilini and Francesca Minerva take the “pro-choice” argument to its logical and loathsome end. They argue that “when circumstances occur after birth such that they would have justified abortion, what we call after-birth abortion should be permissible.”
They propose to call the practice “after-birth aborPreviewtion” rather than “infanticide” to stress their belief that the moral status of a newborn baby is no different from that of an unborn baby.
Perhaps we should “abort” them? No? That would be ‘murder’ you say? Explain to me the difference between slaughtering the pre-born, the born, and these pigs!
You ALL disgust me!
Last night, we were on baby watch again. Not physically, mind you, but through texts messages, and Facebook. This time, it was my beautiful niece, Whitney, my baby brother’s daughter,
As the hours went by, there was little word. I could only assume things were progressing smoothly. Finally, word from Grandma…. dilated to 10 and time to push! And that’s the last I heard for nearly an hour! *tapping toes* Of course, it was driving me nuts, but since I knew how busy everyone was, and they are 1400 miles away, there wasn’t much I could say or do.
Then….there she was…the newest member of the family!
Introducing Miss Ava Hope, entering the world at 12:01am, 03/21/12, weighing in at 7 pounds 1 ounce, and 19 3/4 inches long!
Mom and wee one are doing great,
Praying that Mommy, Daddy, and little bit will have a long, healthy, and happy life! And the grandparents will have the joy of spoiling her rotten, and handing her back over to the parents. Heh.
Yeah….I’m tacky that way.
Bringing the Light of Freedom to Cuba
The society that Pope Benedict XVI will find when he lands in Cuba next week will be a destitute one, prostrate in every way. The once proud and comparatively wealthy Cubans are now among the poorest in the hemisphere, definitely the least informed and, consequently, the least free. For outsiders, Cuba is a cautionary tale about what happens when a minority with guns takes over and tries to create a socialist paradise. For Cubans, who can’t escape, Cuba oscillates between inferno and merely tedious existence.
Cuba is disconnected from the rest of the world, via phone or internet, because the communists in charge want it that way. Information is power, and the last thing the generals in charge want is an empowered population. And the Internet, of course, is the most liberating media of all.
The Heritage Foundation and Google Ideas will team up today for a conference on how to bring connectivity to Cuba. The featured speaker at this conference will be Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), whose parents hailed from Cuba and who has used his position as ranking member of the Western Hemisphere subcommittee of the Foreign Relations Committee to become a powerful voice for human rights.
